Louis Vuitton just presented its spring 2022 collection at Paris’ famed Louvre, and as the show notes state, it was grand and it was great. The collection is meant to inspire living in the present and existing where time is of no consequence. Pieces from the collection, dubbed ‘an invitation of the grand ball of time,’ are meant to transform and inspire, transcending generations and juxtaposing elements from various eras. One look at RTW and bags from the collection and the viewer can be transported.
As for the bags, Louis Vuitton fans won’t be disappointed. There are fresh takes on old favorites, like an elongated version of the ever-popular Petite Malle, which is shown in classic monogram alongside elaborate, embellished versions. The art of the trunk continues with Louis Vuitton’s newest silhouette, a small hard-sided top handle, which celebrates and showcases the Maison’s storied savoir-faire. There is also a new all-leather Pochette, which is simple in shape but bears the Petite Malle’s iconic trunk-like closure and two strap options. As for the carry-over styles, The Cannes and Coussin bag are reimagined for spring 2022, shown in Monogram-embossed patent leather with contrasting details. View bags from the runway below.
